Solved

Hi,

I haven't seen anything recent about this and going in circles with the support documents.

I am setting up an eCommerce business in Dubai. Wanting to use Shopify but there is no provider to use Shopify Payments, thus if I want to use Stripe, I would need to pay 2% to Shopify, plus % to Stripe as well??

Someone confirm or tell me I'm wrong please!

I Completely understand you @BigJusDXB.

I'll make a feature request for Shopify Payments in UAE on your behalf with this in mind!

Hi @BigJusDXB,

Really good question!

As you mentioned, Shopify Payments (SP) isn't available in the UAE currently and Stripe is possible to use as seen in the UAE Payment Gateways help guide here. If you use a third party payment gateway such as Stripe outside of SP then you would pay the CC fees for the gateway you're using which in this case would be Stripe aswell as transaction fees (these change depending on which plan you are on). 

You can see these rates in the screenshot below from the Shopify Pricing page:

Thanks Nick, that’s really helpful. I’m not going mad!
Shame, as it makes Shopify double the cost of other combinations
